Even though I ran track through my college career and have a national championship title to my name, spending free time with my husband and son challenges my athletic abilities. Don’t be surprised to find me out on the football practice field throwing passes and running routes.  I am not as fast as I once was, but I can now run a post!

Experience
As the firm’s healthcare technical leader, I advise a variety of healthcare entities on technical matters. I focus on staying current on new accounting standards that impact the healthcare industry and provide education and guidance to clients and staff on these requirements.

Clients appreciate my deep experience in the healthcare field. My background has been instrumental in solving many challenges that my clients face, and they know they can count on me for my practical insight and real-world solutions. I’m known for my collaborative approach when resolving technical matters with engagement teams and clients.

I’m a member of the AICPA, where I serve as the chairperson of the Health Care Expert Panel, and the Ohio Society of CPAs. I’m also active with the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) where I serve as a board member for the Central Ohio Chapter. I also have been appointed to the Principles and Practices Board. HFMA has recognized me for my local and national participation as a chapter volunteer with its Follmer Bronze Award and the Reeves Silver Award. I’m also actively involved with the National AICPA Healthcare Industry Conference Planning Committee. I earned my B.A. in accounting and business administration from Mount Union College.

Outside of the office, I spend my free time with my husband and son. We go out for a weekly family pizza night where we catch up on the week’s events. We also tend to choose vacation spots with water, from water parks to Niagara Falls.
